Today is National Wear Red Day in honor of women's heart health. Our tickers are in danger and February 4 is dedicated to raising awareness for heart disease, the number one killer of women 20 years and older. The facts are alarming and the American Heart Association wants to educate, inform, and raise funding for research.
You can do your part by wearing red today. A scarf, some pumps, a shade of lipstick, it all works. Don't have anything red in your closet? Macy's is currently offering a special 20% off discount to women shoppers wearing red; the promotion ends Sunday, February 6. So borrow something red from your neighbor and hit the mall.
Red is the color of bravery, power, and daring -- so don't be shy! Put on that red dress and strut your stuff for women's heart health. But if you're a little scared of the bright color, here are some tips for wearing red.
The best thing you can probably do today is wear red gym clothes and take a walk. Keep chic, and keep healthy!
